There a chance those Delhi University students who pursue the four-year undergraduate programme may get their master's degree in a year, through a credit-based system. The Delhi University is planning to introduce one year post graduate courses especially for those students who pursue and complete the four-year undergraduate programme in a credit-based system.

This also indicates that if PG programmes are made for one year duration through a credit based system the students are likely to enjoy more flexibility while picking a suitable course for themselves.

The DU vice chancellor Dinesh Singh stated that few reforms will be seen effective from the approaching session itself, whereas the full set of changes will be brought and visible from 2015-16 onward.

The proposal for a one year PG reforms is yet to be approved by the university's academic and executive councils.

The DU vice chancellor told that the work on the PG course reforms and proposal is going on  and he may like to call it a credit based system , rather than a one year or two year programme. Students will not have to pass in the examinations but also may have to attain a certain minimum number of credits to clear the examination; the students will have to earn minimum prescribed credits in a year’s time.

In addition, Trans-disciplinary PG programmes shall also be launched in a meta-department environment. The complete information will be declared soon.
